MadC – Street to Canvas

Street to Canvas’, a solo exhibition of paintings by the internationally renowned graffiti artist MadC will go on show at HENI Gallery, in Soho, opening on 18 November 2021.

The exhibition includes 20 paintings on canvas made over the last year. The largest work in the show, which measures 4.5 meters wide, is an explosive and immersive painting that bridges the public and private aspects of MadC’s practice.

Through her canvas-bound studio paintings MadC breathes new life into the storied history of abstraction. Defined by declarative mark-making and layered, vibrant colours, her translucent gestures interact with each other to create their own internal space and kinetic figure-ground relationships. MadC’s canvas painting practice is undeniably rooted in graffiti art and culture, thus transporting the explosive energy and visual language of street art into HENI Gallery.
